RVCC Planetarium Slates Star Shows, Laser Concerts, Children’s Programs in January

(BRANCHBURG, NJ) -- The Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium will present in-person laser concerts and star shows for all ages on Saturdays in January. Face masks are required in all campus buildings, including in the Planetarium. The Planetarium also will have reduced capacity seating and social distancing will be followed.

The following shows will be offered at the Planetarium in Branchburg:

Magic Tree House: Space Mission, Saturday, January 22 at 3:00pm - Join Jack and Annie as they discover the secrets of the Sun, Moon, planets, space travel, and more.  Who can help them answer the questions left for them by the mysterious "M"?  This show is based on the same-titled, best-selling series of novels. (Recommended for ages 5 and older)

Laser Kids laser concert, Saturday, January 22 at 4:00pm - The show features a new song mix with music to entertain kids and kids at heart while lasers “dance” on the dome overhead. Songs include “Bright” by Echosmith, “YMCA” by the Village People, “Mia” by Bad Bunny, and “Waka Waka” by Shakira. (Recommended for ages 6-12)

First and Farthest, Saturdays, January 22 & 29 at 7:00pm - From the first rockets to the first man on the Moon, “First and Farthest” celebrates humanity's great accomplishments in the Space Race. The show may bring back memories for those who experienced the Space Race, and inspire new generations to keep exploring the universe. With its discussion of science, technology, engineering, and mathematical concepts, “First and Farthest” supports a STEM-focused pursuit of knowledge. The presentation is made possible with a grant from NASA’s New Jersey Space Grant Consortium. Weather permitting, the 3M Observatory will be open after the show. (Recommended for ages 10-adult)
